The Sims 3 – Leaked?!

There have been plenty of rumors about The Sims 3 being leaked on the Internet. First messages claiming that there’s a full download of The Sims 3 started to spread about a month ago, but were later labeled as false and in some cases, they were just viruses.

But now The Sims 3 has gone gold and the Internet is getting crowded with new messages that there’s a full version of The Sims 3. Yeah, the real pirates have gone wild. Of course, I’m not including any links, because I don’t support piracy, but I’m sure if you google things a bit, you’ll find it somewhere.

However, I’m not going to lie that I didn’t make any searches. Although I’ve already pre-ordered my game, this news is somewhat exciting, even though I plan to wait till it arrives to my door. People in comments of various sites claim the game works perfectly with no glitches and bugs. Interesting. What might be a proof showing it is the real game is that the links are slowly going down – perhaps EA has started to solve this problem.

One of the reasons why the game spreads so fast is probably due to no real protection – we already know the game will be protected only with serial number, but some sources claim that it’s safer to disconnect from the Internet while installing the pirated version.

The funniest thing about this is that even Spore was leaked before it’s official release and of course, where else would the pirates get the game from if not from EA itself? I think someone will get fired, some people will download it and will never buy it and some will download even though they’ve already pre-ordered the game. And the rest will wait impatiently for June 2nd. I just hope that this won’t inspire EA to include some nice DRM protection in the next EP. 

After all, the game would get online sooner or later. And the fact that it’s out earlier won’t make the real pirates buy the game anyway.


TS3: New Ad, 2 Videos & Pictures of Sunset Valley

If nothing more, you should at least see the first video. The new ad is really nice, if I ever watched TV and lived in the US, I think it would be my favorite ad ever. (Well, right after the Mac & PC ads, of course.)

The new town looks so big! It will take hours for Sims to walk it from one site to the other side. But there’s one thing I really don’t understand. There have been some other pictures of the town already, and they seem like a totally different ‘hood. Will there be more hoods than just the Sunset Valley? I’m really confused. If you know anything, please, let me know.
